We took an hour helicopter tour with a glacier landing on Knik Glacier. The whole area is very beautiful and serene. We did enjoy (even though very short) our heli ride and the time spent on the glacier but think it was a bit pricey...More

Tom was so friendly and very informative with the tour. Very personable. Even went above and beyond providing coffee and snacks after we explore the Glacier. Highly recommended.

Getting to the glacier is half the fun! Big trucks air & jet boats, lots of moose river crossings. Then the ice is spectacular the views are unforgettable even on a cloudy day.

I am sure that if you call them 907-745-1577 they can schedule you. Their boat is large and can handle several people. The suggestion to contact them on their web site is also good.
